GLOBAL HEBREW & JEWISH MUSIC: TRADITIONAL | ORIGINAL

Mediterranean | Middle Eastern | Jewish

So what is the secret of Yamma that catches so easily the ear of thousands of listeners all over the globe? (watch Yamma’s global impact here).

The music is rare, esoteric, niche and played with ancient instruments (duduk, ney, kopuz, oud, shofar) and creates the feeling of ancient times, strong sense of spiritual heritage & tradition although the materials are sometimes original and contemporary.

The sound, the performance, the selection of the materials and the moving arrangements took this music far beyond any expectation of the ensemble members. Without special plans, the ensemble became global and international, yet managed to remain authentic, local and loyal to the region in which it developed and was born.

Main focus | The magical Hebrew language:

Hebrew language receives a place of honor in all its layers and periods. It’s the only living Canaanite language left and the only truly successful example of a revived dead language.

It survived 3000 years into the medieval period as the language of Jewish liturgy, rabbinic literature intra- Jewish commerce, and poetry.

In the 19th century, it was revived as a spoken and literary language.

It is alive and kicking even in the twenty-first century.

In addition to this unique art and Hebrew focusing, Yamma also performs the traditional music and hidden materials of the various Jewish diasporas.

Songs of the Jewish communities from Yemen, Babylon, and Sepharad, as well as Hasidic music, with the fascinating forms and rhythms that have been preserved by generations of Jewish traditions.

~ Jewish Babylonian – Psalm 104 – the Jews of Babylon
~ Jewish Turkish – Kondja mia – the Jews of Istanbul
~ Jewish Greek – Sien drachmas – the Jews of Thessaloniki
~ Jewish Yemenite – Sapari tama – the Jews of Yemen
~ Jewish Bukharian – Atem Shalom– the Jews of Bukhara
~ Jewish Hasidic –from your place – Hasidic Jews
